THIS PRODUCT IS DESIGNED TO SPRAY CHEMICALS THAT MAY BE HARMFUL AND COULD CAUSE SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY IF INHALED OR BROUGHT INTO CONTACT WITH THE USER. FAILURE TO READ AND FOLLOW OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USE AND/OR MISUSE OF THIS PRODUCT COULD RESULT IN EXPLOSIVE FAILURE WITH MAJOR INJURIES. • • • • • • • • • ALWAYS water test unit before using. ALWAYS wear protective clothing, eye protection, and gloves. ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW label instructions for chemicals to be applied. AFTER USE - release pressure, empty, and clean the sprayer. RELEASE pressure in sprayer before servicing. DO NOT alter sprayer. DO NOT spray gasoline or other flammables. DO NOT store liquids in tank. DO NOT leave sprayer in the sun. INITIAL ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS: 1.Be sure to first insert pink siphon tube into hose insert otherwise sprayer will not operate. 2.Lubricate (with grease or petroleum jelly), the o-ring on the hose insert and slide into tank until fully seated. 3.Slide tank nut to threaded connection and securely screw onto tank. 4.Attach the flow control to the hose by unscrewing the flow control nut from the back of the flow control. Slide it directly onto the end of the hose. 5.Push the hose onto the back of the flow control all the way past the barb and up to the threads and screw together. Hand tighten only. 6.Push the extension rod into the flow control until it stops. Slide extension nut o-ring to the flow control and screw together. Hand tighten only. !OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS: 1.Remove the pump from the tank by turning counter clockwise. 2.Prepare spray solution following instructions provided with the chemicals. For best results, mix in a separate container and strain through cloth sieve when pouring into tank. Do not fill tank above the maximum fill marker. 3.Close tank by inserting pump assembly through opening. Turn clockwise until pump is sealed tightly into tank. 4.When the sprayer is filled, 20-30 strokes on the pump should supply enough pressure for spraying. More strokes will be needed if tank is only partially filled. As the fluid level goes down, more strokes may be needed. To work the pump, unlock pump handle from pump cap by turning counter clockwise. Lock the handle again by turning clockwise. 5.To start spraying, squeeze the flow control lever. Release pressure from the lever and the spray will stop. To spray continuously, squeeze the lever, and slide the lock forward. See Figure. 6.If your sprayer has an adjustable cone nozzle, screw it in clockwise for a fine mist, and counter clockwise for a coarse stream. Flat fan nozzles are not adjustable. 7.To depressurize the tank, turn the tank upside down. Squeeze the flow control lever until all air pressure is gone. If your sprayer has a pressure relief valve, pull up on the valve stem. WARNING!!! To prevent ejected pump assembly and/or solution from striking and injuring you, never stand with face or body over the top of the tank when pumping or loosening pump. 8.Empty any remaining solution into a proper storage container or disposal container. Do not store chemicals in the tank. If the chemical is stored in the tank, it can clog the system as it dries and can promote corrosion. 9.Clean the sprayer after each use to prolong its life. After using water-based products, rinse thoroughly with water, being sure to flush out hose and flow control. After spraying solvent or oil-based products, follow chemical manufacturer’s recommended cleaning procedure. 10.To store the sprayer, hang the tank upside down with the pump removed and the flow control locked “on”. This allows for proper drainage and drying. 11.Check for worn or damaged parts frequently. ! MAINTENANCE AND DISASSEMBLY: To keep the pump working smoothly and efficiently, the plunger u-cup seal needs to be lubricated often. Disassemble pump, according to the instructions below, and apply grease or petroleum jelly around the outside of the plunger cup. Note: Your sprayer was lubricated at the time of manufacture. To disassemble pump, lay pump down on table. With a flat blade screwdriver, push in on the tabs on each side of the pump and pry down. Pull up on the handle and the plunger assembly should come out of the pump cylinder. To reassemble, insert plunger assembly into cylinder and push the tabs back into place. See Figure. ! TROUBLESHOOTING: Always depressurize the sprayer, remove chemical solution, and clean the sprayer before making repairs. Refer to the parts diagram for part numbers and names.
